That said, there can be good local/regional chains like Whataburger, Portillo's, and In N Out

Exactly... Would one consider KFC "authentic Kentuckian cuisine"?

California at #1 and Texas #2 always in my book due to sheer diversity and amount of non-chain restaurants that serve authentic food. Kansas’ life line is Johnson County honestly which actually should bump it up a couple of spots. I am content with Missouri being 22. The 2 big cities have a food scene that punches above their weight.

Seems kind of biased against the Midwestern/Plains states but they did say it was a subjective ranking.

I disagree with the article's assertion that Washington grows the best apples and cherries. The author has obviously never had Michigan cherries or cold-climate variety apples.

It is though. Most restaurants in FL are chains, and its very hard to find good food in FL. Sorry but thats very accurate. You dont go to FL for food.

Lots in history is wrong things done by wrong people. Texas is often rather loud about their accomplishments, for good and ill. Such is life.

I’m from Tennessee and I’d say it’s right. Our food isn’t healthy for the most part but it is tasty.

What a delicious blood sugar spike!

I'm trying to do better, to avoid getting diabetes later on. It's been about a year since I had that combo and I'm eating brown rice now. Southern food will take you to the grave early if you don't eat it in moderation. In the end I'll probably accept a few years being shaved off.
